The crowdfunding for the PC game Star Citizen has pushed beyond the $93 million mark.  The game has over one million backers and, at the time of this article, funding stands at $93,227,378.

Chris Roberts, the creator of Star Citizen, had previously said he expected the campaign to surpass the $100 million mark.  With the speed that the title has gained momentum it looks like that goal could be reached before the year is out.

The backer milestone of one million was achieved after last weekend’s event, CitizenCon.

Actors such as Gary Oldman, Mark Hamill, John Rhys-Davies, Gillian Anderson, Andy Serkis, Ben Mendelsohn, and Mark Strong will appear in the game.

No release date has been announced for Star Citizen as of yet.

    I’ve got some information below if you want to try out the early alpha of Star Citizen. Right now there’s a Free flight mode, a battle AI horde mode, multiplayer mode, racing mode, and planetary landing zone. The first Alpha of the PU is coming out soon(tm) (the same goes for the FPS mode). If you buy in early the game will only cost about $45 USD. There are more expensive pledge options, but everything will be earnable in game.

    You can sign up to Star Citizen using this link and get extra in game currency.

    It’s not 1 million backers. It’s one million accounts. Anyone can go there and create many accounts without pledge and will count to raise this number. Why game press have to be so ridiculous?
    Why help a company to mislead the public about its actual popularity? Why to corroborate with misrepresentation of the facts?
    They could have not even 300k backers and you are saying 1 million “Backers”
    /facepalm
